The Background

Dear all,

When Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji was about to enter as BJP's PM candidate for a full five year term, I wrote to him asking whether all his prospective ministers are in Mission ready state - or do they need training in the nuances of Governance. If so, I requested him to work on a short term intensive course with IIM or any other Leading Institute and make them undergo.

For this, I received a thanking letter from Sri Vajpayee's secretary, beyond that nothing else seems to take place.

But the thought has got strengthened in me with every passing year and the birth of IIG blossomed with an aroma to transform our younger generations as Visionary Leaders loaded with the style of governance needed to handle the world of today and tomorrow without compromising the ethics and moral values taught by our predecessors since ancient time.

N Harihara Subramanian

On the day 25-dec-2014 when the present government declared that day as "GOOD GOVERNANCE DAY", the seed for IIG was sown during the meeting held at Savera hotel, Chennai by a group of eminent leaders & social thinkers drawn from different streams.

Where the need for a special course to impart knowledge, wisdom, skill sets, visionary thinking and high leadership attributes towards good governance was endorsed by one and all as the need of the day.

It was also felt that such a high end leadership should be made available not only for state / country and global governance opportunities but also to head Corporate, Business, Academic, NGO, UN and that of other world bodies.

  1. India with its 10000 years of history, the plethora of great personalities, Kings, poets, philosophers and saints and their wisdom, the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavath Gita, Ardha Shastra, Thirukkural and numerous other manuscripts and inscriptions in temple stones, not to leave the Great Vedas which have transcended over thousands of years by word of mouth, has every thing in it to give raise to great leaders for our States, Countries, World and World Bodies.

  2. The contribution of India to the world in every field of activity has no equal, and to the levels to which it rose also has no parallel.

  3. To give a sample of its Leaders - Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi of recent past should do.

  4. With all this combine the great Wisdom of the rest of the World and we should have inputs for a Stellar Governance & Leadership Program; sprinkle it with a good dosage of Experiential Learning (which will be the back bone of such a transaction, nay Transformation) add the personal interaction of 100-150 great minds of India and World, We will be all set to Chisel Global leaders-who will think Global and act local.

  5. The critical things being the proper selection of the Candidates and the duration of such a training.

  6. In the next 3 months we need to arrive at the course content, methodologies, resource persons, and the entry level prerequisites of prospects etc., and tie up a few institutes for launch.

  7. Simultaneously we have to work on taking it up to young minds and the spreading awareness among the general public.

  8. As we will be focusing on the task one - which is primary to us, we will be searching / creating vehicles for the other two objectives.

Thank you.

IIG will be the knowledge hub for Leadership & Governance run by an academic council of best of men and women in the country - there will be a state level and a National level committee and a National governing body in the execution of the same.

IIG with its global R&D and curriculum will be focussing and working continuously in shaping the Methodologies, experiential learning, interaction with the thought and action leaders, resource books, reference materials, visits, etc. guiding and detailing the pedagogy with a set of inputs and professors working under them. They will also service IIG as resource persons and visiting professors or even as a full time faculty.

IIG, thus will not be spending its energy in raising huge Structures, but collaborate with existing Institutes and deemed Universities of eminence to deliver the carefully designed courses. IIG will have State level headquarters and a National level headquarter which will also double up as the Nodal Resource centres and centres of parallel governance and guiding the States and Nations on key issues and developments.

We are planning three types of courses to start with:

  1. An 18 months or 24 months program of 9-12 Semesters which will be called PG Diploma in Governance & Leadership. 3 Semesters will be dedicated to experiential learning
  2. A 36-48 months program which will top up the above to give PG Masters in Governance & Leadership with 6 Semesters of experiential learning
  3. The entire work of every Leader, his thought process, group findings, and presentations will be available in the IIG PORTAL to which every alumni will have a life time interaction and learning

The third and most important part of program will be the entire course content spread in about 30 modules will be available to all in the country to log on register and learn with and the aspirants can choose a set of six modules and seek a test & certification from IIG directly on payment of a nominal fee.

By this IIG will be disseminating the knowledge, wisdom and skill sets down the line to everyone who can neither get into nor afford a full time course on this vital arena of Governance & Leadership.
